Tomcat 7 has changed in a way so that there is no longer a server/tomcat/conf/catalina/localhost/<appName>.xml file by default. Instead, you modify the file at server/tomcat/webapps/<appName>/META-INF/context.xml.

For more information, you can see the "Defining a context" section of

By the way, are you following instructions somewhere to change a CLM application to BASIC auth? If so, I'd like to see if it needs to be updated. If you are using, then there is a comment I added at the bottom of the article mentioning the new file location for Tomcat 7.

Hello Chulindra,

Thanks for your solution ...i have changed the web.xml of all apps and context .xml files .

Its working fine with basic authentication.

And i have a doubt is the feed settings are important when we do third paty tool integration with JTS .

Thank you.

You may want to use the admin pages on the server rather than changing files by hand.  I found a lot of entries for Authentication on this page:
